The band, whose popularity was at its peak in the ’90s, is scheduled to give three performances in Ra’anana May 19-21. They landed in Israel on Sunday from their last performance in Thailand.

The Backstreet Boys are scheduled to tour throughout Israel prior to Tuesday’s performance, including the Galilee, the Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, Israeli media reported.

The band, on its first visit to Israel, is accompanied by an entourage of about 25 people.

The band cancelled three sold-out performances last July due to the Gaza conflict. At the time of the cancellation, the band promised to reschedule.
